...THE SAXOPHONE SONG... by Kate Bush
------------------------.............

*from 'The Kick Inside' (1978)*


Intro:

Dm  Am

Verse 1:

Dm                   Am
 You'll find me in a Berlin bar,
Bb    F       Dm
 In a corner, brooding.

Dm               Am
 You know that I go very quiet,
Bb        F            G
 When I'm listening to you.

        Dm
There's something special indeed,
There's something special indeed.

Chorus 1:

D
 In all the places,
G
 Where I've seen you shine, boy,
D
 There's something,
     G                         Em
Very real in how I feel, honey.

        C   G       Em Bm
It's in me, it's in me-e.
                      Am
And you know it's for real.

F                        (Am)
 Tuning in on your...saxo-phone.

Break:

Am  F, Dm (x3)

F                 E7
 Doo-bee, doo-bee-doo...
F#sus4 F#
 Ooh  -ooh.

Interlude:

Dm

Verse 2:

Dm          Am
 The candle burning,
               Bb   F
Over your shoulder,
Dm
 Is throwing;

Dm       Am
 Shadows from your saxophone,
Bb       F       G
 A surly lady in tremor.

    Dm
The stars that climb from her bowels,
Those stars make towers on vowels.

Chorus 2:

D
 You'll never see,
     G
That you had all of me,
D
 You'll never know,
         G
The poet-ry you've stirred in me.

D
 Of all the stars,
     G
I've seen that shine so brightly,
D
 I've never known,
   G                         Em
Or felt in myself so rightly.

        C   G       Em Bm
It's in me, it's in me-e.
                      Am
And you know it's for real.

F                        (Am)
 Tuning in on your...saxo-phone.

Break:

Am  F, Dm (x3)

F                 E7
 Doo-bee, doo-bee-doo...
F#sus4 F#
 Ooh  -ooh.

Outro:

Dm

(Repeat to Fade)
